Ah science day! We had so much fun. This year the older grades came down to the lower grades to share in the love for learning about science. We had such a fun experience with each other! Thank you Mr. Teuscher for helping us to organize this! Here are a few different examples of what some of the students experienced!

This past Friday was Science Day at Riverview! Our class got the opportunity to go into Mrs. Grant's 2nd grade class and learn about static electricity! Together, we did some amazing experiments that helped us understand electricity. Students rubbed balloon on their hair and clothing to create static electricity, and saw how it affected other items that were positively and negatively charged! It was a blast!

Principal Moment

To celebrate the hundredth day of school, young children all over the country sing songs, shout cheers, read books, count numbers, chant poems, make murals, and string Froot Loop necklaces.  When I was a kid, no one celebrated 100th Day.  Now it’s huge. 

Monday, Riverview students in grades 1 - 6 will celebrate the 100th day of school (Kindergarten will celebrate the 100th day on February 3rd.) 

I wonder who the teacher was who started 100th day.  Did she  have any idea that her cute little idea would turn into a national event?  Could she have ever imagined that her little brainstorm would cause Froot Loops’ stock to soar on Wall Street every January?  Happy 100th Day of School!

Riverview Learning Pit/Learner Powers

Our learner character for January is Molly Monkey.  She lived on a beautiful island, in a banana tree.  Molly watched her mom swing from branch to branch to reach the yummy bananas.  “I’m hungry” she thought.  She used her long arms, reached for a branch with both arms and fell to the ground.  Molly’s mom picked her up and said “listen to my instructions and watch carefully and soon you will be able to reach the yummy bananas.”  Molly’s mom taught her how to swing her body, where to place her hands, and how to spot the ripest bananas.  “Now your turn.” said Molly’s mom. Molly tried again.  Her swing was wobbly, she forgot which branch to grab, she fell to the ground feeling frustrated.  Molly’s mom picked her up, gave her a hug, and told her to try again, but this time reflect on what she had been taught.   Molly slowed down, she thought about how to swing her body, which branches to grab and how to spy the ripest bananas.  She tried again.  “Hooray” shouted her mom; “You are making progress.  You will soon be able swinging through the branches just like me!”  Be like Molly Monkey.

We are so proud of our Make your Mark students of the month! We were able to celebrate them today and also find out how much four sixth grade boys knew about The rules of the school. They did very well and know what it is to be a RAM!

Principal Moment

I’m a grandmother.  Students hear that and think I am Mother Time.  It is kinda depressing to see the wrinkles and gray appear.  I don’t feel old.  Makes me think of a line from the book Goodbye, Mr. Chips.  It is a book of an old teacher and school master who remembers his career and his personal life over the decades.  There is a line in the book that illuminates how I feel about my job…”It must be tremendously interesting to be a schoolmaster…I don’t see how you could ever get old in a world that’s always young.”

Principal Moment

Today, I asked many students what they got for Christmas.  A few responded with, “Sick.”  We had over 124 students absent today.

Over the year’s teacher become quite good at telling when a child will be sick.  Germs are sequential.  They travel from side to side.  Seldom do they jump to the student behind or in front.  And they rarely skip rows.  If Ronny sits next to Sarah, and Sarah sits next to Anthony and Ronny is out sick, teachers know that Sarah will be sick in a day or two.  And when Sarah is out, we know that Anthony will soon be home watching Netflix and loading up on vitamins.

Our new school motto: “Wash your hands with soap,” “Button your coats,” “Put on your mittens,” “Cover your mouth when you cough,” and “Don’t sneeze on anyone!”

SEP Conferences

SEP Conferences will be held Thursday, January 9th from 3:15-8:45 PM.  You will be getting an email this week from SignUpGenius.  This email will allow you to visit the website, find your child’s teacher(s), and sign-up for the time that is most convenient to your individual schedule.  Parents, if you find a need to change your appointment the day of conferences, please contact the teacher so he/she is aware of the change. 

There will be no school for students on Friday, January 10th. Thank you.

PTA

Our wonderful volunteer PTA is looking for help providing a simple meal the night of SEP conference so that teachers can make it through the busy evening.   If you would like to participate, please follow this link to sign-up https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/20f0f4dacac23a3ff2-sepdinner/12715074

Learner Powers/Animal Characters

During morning announcements, I often tell students, “I hope you are thrown into the learning pit today!”  When learning is difficult – when your brain ‘hurts’ – I want students to know they are making their ‘learning muscles’ stronger.  When students are really struggling to understand something, I hope they remind themselves that uncomfortable feelings are an important part of learning: all learners have them!

Our learner character for January is Molly Monkey.  She lived on a beautiful island, in a banana tree.  Molly watched her mom swing from branch to branch to reach the yummy bananas.  “I’m hungry” she thought.  She used her long arms, reached for a branch with both arms and fell to the ground.  Molly’s mom picked her up and said “listen to my instructions and watch carefully and soon you will be able to reach the yummy bananas.”  Molly’s mom taught her how to swing her body, where to place her hands, and how to spot the ripest bananas.  “Now your turn.” said Molly’s mom.
